This is the introductory course to building and operating first person view (FPV) drones. Students will be introduced to the components that make up an FPV drone. Students will also be introduced to the steps needed to learn to fly a FPV drone using a simulator.
Students can prepare for this course by browsing the information at https://oscarliang.com/fpv-drone-guide/#what-is-fpv-flying. Especially useful is to read chapter 4 "Get a Taste of Flying in a Simulator". Pick a simulator with a compatible controller and get some early practice in before the start of the course.
A series of build classes will be offered following this class. If you plan to build a drone, we strongly recommend learning to fly this way to reduce the risk of crashing your newly built drone.
All levels 18+ are welcome.
